in reply to My cow-orkers mostly...

Where is "I don't have coworkers because I don't have a job, you insensitive clod!" -- oh, that's right, on the ./ poll, right above "are CowboyNeal fanatics".

Seriously, though, I voted for "are written in Perl" because the utilities I've written in Perl over the years have saved me more work than most of my human counterparts. Unfortunately, I think that's part of why my latest employer thinks my job will be so easy to fill somewhere that the going pay rate is twice what it is here.

Anyway, no reason to be bitter I guess. I wish them luck, and hopefully they wish me luck on the job hunt, too. Perl should come in just as handy at the next place that hires me, and maybe they won't be so quick to toss me out for silly reasons like physical proximity to the servers which were here when I was hired and which I successfully worked on for over a year after they moved.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yes but I also need to implement the file / IO watcher, because Prima has that (in Prima::File), and I need to supply the appropriate thing to make push_write etc. work with Prima
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, you need to implement the io watcher, which should be simple because Prima::File is basically that, and the timer watcher form Prima::Timer
[Corion]: ... or so I think. As I said, I'm somewhat vague on how to make AnyEvent cooperate with a callback-driven IO event loop that gives me callbacks when data is available or can be written
[ambrus]: what push_write thing? I don't think you need that. that's implemented generically by AnyEvent::Handle
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, that's what I think as well. But you give me an idea, maybe I should start with implementing the timer, as that should be far simpler and with fewer edge-cases/nasty interaction than the file watcher
[ambrus]: You only provide the watcher part that tells when the handle is readable or writable, not the actual writing and reading.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmmm. It makes sense that AnyEvent would implement the push_write itself, but I think I don't have a good idea of where the boundary between AnyEvent and the underlying event system lies... Implementing the timer should give me a better idea
[ambrus]: Corion: push_write is in the higher level abstraction of AnyEvent::Handle, not in the watcher
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - rereading Prima::File, that merrily coincides with what Prima does - it tells you "you can read", and you're supposed to read from the fh yourself. I thought it called you with the data already read, which would've been harder to integrate
[ambrus]: you just need an io watcher, created by &AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::io(...)
